Hamilton is stunning and majestic and complying to Hamilton fencing bylaws can keep it that way while helping you avoid paying fines.

Benefits for Hamilton Fence Bylaw Compliance

For those looking into getting their own fence installed, be sure to account for these challenges:

  • Increased property value: bylaws take into account the aesthetics of your neighbourhood and city to ensure your property and adjacent real estate reflects their proper value during appraisal.
  •  Avoids costs of by-law infractionHamilton has a number of fencing bylaws, particularly for residents with pools, and lack of compliance will result in rework and fines.
  • Lost time due to rework: if a bylaw variance is found you will be required to rework your fence to ensure compliance, meaning wasted time and effort in having to acquire and install new parts.
  • Safety of family and coworkers: having a fence in your yard hedging off traffic can help you protect those in your care.

The best way to go to avoid these challenges is to let Jay Fencing provide you with our unparalleled focus on your needs with quality workmanship that stands the test of time.

After spending time and money on your property, fencing the last thing you want is to get tagged with for bylaw infraction. Here are some quick tips on how to stay compliant.  This is by no means a replacement for a full review of the actual Hamilton bylaw.

  1. Maximum height non-industrial: 2.0m  for non-industrial or non-farming zones.
  2. Maximum height industrial/farming: 3.0m.
  3. Parking obstruction: ensure that the fence does not obstruct parking zones.
  4. Avoid using sheet and corrugated metal: avoid using the aforementioned materials in your fence when you are in a residential area or in the Niagara Escarpment zones.
  5. Avoid using barbed wire fencing: avoid using the aforementioned material for your fence unless you are using it for industrial or farming purposes.
  6. Avoid running electric current in your fence: unless for the purposes of keeping animals penned in on a farming property.  The electric fence must also meet the guidelines set out by Canadian Standards Association.

These highlights will help you get started, but be sure to talk to our qualified team and review the full bylaw. If a property’s fence is enclosing a pool, other specific regulations will apply.

Hamilton Fencing Bylaws: Residential Fence Height Exceptions

A fence may be 2.4m height or 2.0m if located on a deck/elevated platform unless: 

  • located at least 1.2m from a side lot line, not including a side lot line where a common or party wall is located.
  • located at least 3.0m from a rear lot line, and no more than 4.5m in length.

A fence gate may exceed the previously stated height exceptions in the following ways:

  • 0.3m additional height allowance for fence gates (2.7/2.3m).
  • 0.4m additional height allowance for an archway forming an entrance or exit.
  • 0.15m additional height allowance for a decorative cap or structural post.

 

Hamilton Fencing Bylaws for Existing Fences

If your fence was completed on or before June 9, 2010, and was in compliance to the bylaws at that time, it remains compliant, as long as the fence has the same:

  • Height
  • Length
  • Material

If there weren’t any bylaws at the time of your fence completion, the current Hamilton Bylaw will apply instead.

Try as they may, residents of Hamilton can find themselves with bylaw fines. An order to change your face can take immediate effect providing notice has been given, if the cost is under $10,000 dollars (Bylaw Section 14).

Any person who violates the bylaws can be subject to the following fines upon conviction:

  1. First conviction: a fine of no more than $10,000 or $50,000 (for corporations).
  2. Subsequent Conviction: a fine of no more than $25,000 or $100,000 (for corporations).

Having a qualified and knowledgeable fencing expert can help you avoid $10,000 to $100,000 in fines.  The small fee is well worth the safety when it comes to complying to Hamilton fence bylaws.

Trex Decks Essentials Guide

The Trex Decks Essentials Guide gives readers the quickest way of determining the pros and cons of this material while offering real customer feedback on the product. Contact Jay Fencing for unbiased product feedback with clear and accurate pricing for your upcoming deck project.

Trex decks is a wood alternative material, made from recycled input like spent sawdust and plastic. Despite its simple material, Trex commands a significant portion of the decking material market. Trex Decks has two lines of decking materials, the Origins line and the Transcend line. Trex has evolved and transitioned to focus on its newer generation materials, the Transcend line. This review will focus on the newer product line, discussing why customers should choose these materials and featuring reviews from both professionals and customers.

Feel free to take a look at the other property-enhancing products and services Jay Fencing provides.

trex deck essentials guide - sample deckWhy Trex thinks you should Choose Trex

First up we start with the reasons why Trex thinks customers would enjoy working with their composite decking materials as provided by their website. As with any balanced appraisal both the pros and cons should be weighed.

  • Performs better than wood – Trex decking resists termites, won’t rot, warp, or splinter, and never needs staining or painting. What’s more, Trex decking is made from 95% recycled materials, making it an environmentally-friendly choice you can feel great about.
  • Ease of maintenance – Although Trex costs more initially, you’ll never have to sand, stain, or paint your Trex deck.
  • Materials Innovation – the new generation Trex materials were designed to keep their coloring for at least 25 years including a limited warranty.

Here is a quick video comparing Trex and other common decking materials:

The approximate price for a Trex deck project clocks in at about $1,500-$2,200 for  a 250 sqft deck based on improvenet.com’s analysis. Even with the highest grade of the Trex composite product, which costs about $9/sqft, this is  significantly less expensive than the average cost of  $30/sqft.

Cost figures are estimated and may appear in USD.  Please contact Jay Fencing for pricing details.

DIYers & Professionals Reviews On Trex Decks

trex deck samples

Here are some excerpts and conclusions we can draw from what DIY enthusiasts and professionals have been saying about Trex decks materials.

  • Can be easily shaped – Trex decking can be uniquely curved and rounded using their Custom Curve system (improvenet.com).
  • Choose colors carefully – Since the materials can’t be repainted, customers must be certain the color is a good fit for them (improvenet.com).
  • Upgrading requires thickness matching – One installer noted that Trex isn’t the only product he’d consider for a decking material, even though it’s second generation product line performed far better than the Origins line (source).
  • Experienced contractors suggest going premium –  On Contractor Talk forums, professionals agree that going with the Transcend line of Trex is worth the money, helping customers avoid any potential quality setback with a more economical option.
  • Ultimately the deck is only as good as the installer – Contractors are quick to note that the final quality of a deck is largely determined by the installation procedure.
  • Contractors still recovering from previous experience – BCConstruction notes that Trex won’t be selected in future as there were challenges that weren’t resolved by Trex’s customer service in relation to the Origins line.

Trex Decks Reviews  by Customers

Customer input from 3rd party sources is included here to see what results real-life owners found when living with Trex Decks over a period of time.

  • Spotting after installation  Mold and mildew related cases of spotting on decks have caused customers to take to the internet to make their woes known. Consumers are looking to get reimbursements as replacing the deck may cost over $10k.
  • Uncomfortably hot decks – another customer from consumeraffairs.com relayed that the deck would heat up, such that walking barefoot would not be possible.
  • Dog paw stains – One reviewer from Fergus, Ontario, noted that they encountered dog paw stains that wouldn’t come off.
  • Customers in windy geographies take note – Trex seems to have trouble keeping furniture or plants from sliding into your home or off the deck when there are turbulent winds rushing through your property.
  • A glimmer of hope for customer service success – One customer suggests patience and careful analysis of why claims for reimbursements may be rejected in case of quality issues. Joe was able to resolve the issue with Trex in a favourable manner despite running into deck issues.

In our analysis, we found that most of the customer complaints relate to the Origins product line, with the new Transcend products offering better quality.

Trex in the News

Expect Jay Fencing to do the nitty gritty research and leg work when you’re working with the team. Trex was founded in 1966 and has had an accomplished history and impressive turn around since then. Here are some highlights of the class action lawsuit that was filed against  Trex regarding their product challenges. There have been numerous complaints regarding the lifespan and quality of Trex decking materials, leading to two consolidated class action lawsuits:

  • Surface flaking issues – One of the lawsuits oriented around surface flaking, with Trex settling to pay $7,500 per claimant . If you believe you may be eligible for this claim of flaking issues with Trex decks here is a form you can fill out.
  • Aging issues – The following lawsuits oriented around mold and color fading with Trex settling for $8.25M (source).

Experts say that materials are expected to degrade and fade over time, but ultimately it comes down to whether the deck installer is knowledgeable and experienced. For clients who are set on a color from a manufacturer like Trex, it is crucial to work with an experienced provider of decking solutions to ensure low upfront costs while attaining top results for a lower total cost of ownership.
